The Rehabilitative Services Unit (RSU) offers short-term, skilled nursing care for patients who require rehabilitation services after an acute hospital stay before returning to their home in the community.

Determining an appropriate post-hospital care plan following a screening by a case manager or discharge planner at an acute care hospital, patients will consult with their physician and family to determine the most appropriate post-hospital care plan.

Goals and objectives will be established If the RSU is recommended, the patient meets the unit's criteria for clinical expertise, and a bed is available, the patient will be admitted to the RSU for short-term care. Review Hebrew Rehabilitation Center Financial Assistance Programs.
